Marvin Church Obituary

Marvin  J.  Church, age 78 of Clear Lake, WI, passed away on March 22, 2023 at the Amery Memory Care in Amery, WI.   

Marvin James Church was born on September 3, 1944, in Amery, WI, the son of Arthur & Ruby (Henry) Church.  He grew up in Clear Lake and graduated from Clear Lake Union Free High School in 1962.  Following graduation, Marvin started farming on the family farm.  After several farm deferments, he was drafted into the US Army and served from 1966-1968 with a rank of Specialist 4th Class.  Marvin served his country at Fort Leonard Wood, Fort Knox and an overseas assignment for Hawk missile maintenance in South Korea during the Vietnam conflict era. After returning from South Korea, he spent his remaining time in the army at Fort Bliss in Texas until he was discharged to civilian life in 1968.  After returning home, Marvin took over the operation of the family farm and made several improvements, including adding fields, dairy cattle, then later changing to beef cattle and crops.  In 1968, Marvin also began working a full-time job at Land O’Lakes manufacturing in Clear Lake which later became Advanced Food Products, retiring after 38 years in 2006.  Since his retirement, he enjoyed hunting, farming, and raising cattle.   Except for the 2 years in the   Army, Marvin lived on the family farm in Clear Lake.  Since 2017, he had been a resident of Willow Ridge Care Center and the Amery Memory Care Assisted Living.
